I kind of disagree


I mean the point about a point who can slash to the basket. Kihei gets past opposing guards all the time, he did it a ton this past season. His problem is that once he gets by his man he struggles to finish around the rim mostly because he'd much rather pass to someone else and have them get the bucket. But there are times he commits and gets up a good shot, it just doesn't go in enough for you to like that option. But if he commits to working on finishing around the basket he'd be a problem, because he seemed to be able to get past his man whenever he wanted to at times. (Granted that might be partly because of his struggles at finishing and the other teams willing to risk it to guard others).

Casey seemed to be able to get to the rim and had some nice finishes at times. Not consistent enough for it to be a threat, but I'm betting at his next stop he'll get it right. I'm sad he's gone, because to me he's mini Derozan, if he were allowed to focus on his mid range game he could be a 2 point assassin. In the same vein Beekman can get to the rack at times and has shown finishing adequate finishing capabilities, just needs to work on doing on this level consistently.

And we've all seen Trey get to the rack. He's a swiss army knife with the ways he can get a bucket. That's why for all the talk of transfers man if UVA was able to land Trevor Keels... I think it's game over for the ACC. Beekman, Trey, and Keels ... that's a tough trio to deal with and if a big like Shedrick/Caffaro/strong transfer big can lock down the middle and provide those killer screens... man that's not even taking into account the kind of year I think Jabri bring a year removed from his injury and hopefully ready to shine.
